Schlage Launches Consumer Blog With “Ugly Door Contest”

The front doors of our homes say so much about us. They welcome guests into our homes, greet friends and family when they arrive and protect our cherished memories. What is your door saying about you? Is it time for an upgrade of your door hardware to showcase your style, reinforce your security and welcome your guests? Schlage’s “Ugly Door Contest” invites consumers to upload their photos and share in 50 words or less why they’d like Schlage to replace their door hardware. To learn more, visit

The contest winner will be selected on Monday, November 22, and the winner will be able to select a Schlage handleset of their choice and accompanying hardware. A gift card for paint and supplies also will be included.
